We had a nice dinner at Mimi's Cafe and got to the fairgrounds early. Traffic in Orange County can be horrendous, especially by the fairgrounds because it's by the OC airport and about three freeway merges. But we made it. The weather cooled off to a nice mid 70's or so.
I had never been to the Amphitheater before and didn't know about the seating. Our tickets were about $40 each and I was hoping we weren't too far away. It didn't seem too bad compared to some venues we've been to.
And they started the countdown two minutes to 8:00. Sit down people!!!!!!
